The new ActiveImage Protector 2018 is here!

  • NEW Virtual Standby Availability: Creates automatically updated boot points with scheduled incremental snapshots directly to a VMware ESXi or Microsoft Hyper-V Host. When a disaster strikes, the virtual standby replica (VSR) can be instantly started (in two minutes according to our test result).
  • Post-backup processing including BootCheck™ and consolidation: Automatically ensures backup images are bootable using Microsoft Hyper-V, saving system resource and time. As part of ImageCenter installer (including in ActiveImage Protector 2018), it can be installed on any machine of the network to offload the BootCheck tasks to a dedicated system, greatly reducing resource demands on the backup source machine.
  • Updated and improved P2V, V2P, P2P, and V2V processing
  • Enhanced Full-state file recovery retains access rights.
  • Supports Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

Be Disaster Ready with ActiveImage Protector for Windows

 
Sector-based backups for physical & virtual machines

Image snapshot agent-based technology that performs hot backups on all machine data: OS, programs, files and folders, settings, ActiveDirectory, SQL, Exchange and any VSS aware applications. Users are not interrupted by this background process.

Unlimited onsite / offsite / Cloud backup replication

Use the provided ImageCenter LE add-on to send backup image files to local folders or network shared folders (CIFS/Samba/SMB) and offsite to any private or public Cloud location via WebDAV (HTTP/HTTPS), FTP, SFTP, FTPS and Amazon S3.

 
Automated backup “recoverability” testing

ActiveImage Protector can be programed to automatically boot newly created backup files as Microsoft Hyper-V or Oracle VirtualBox VMs and notifies you in the event of boot failure. This way, the integrity of the backup files are verified and ensures recoverability in the event of disaster.

See it boots by yourself

Use the integrated ImageBoot add-on to boot any backup file as a VM into a Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware Player/Workstation or Oracle VirtualBox. This process takes as little as 2 minutes and allows you to see with your own eyes, new or old backup files are valid and can be restored at a future date. ImageBoot can also be used to create Test environments.

 
Easy to use: all in 3 clicks

Set up backup jobs in 3 clicks, restore in 3 clicks, virtualise in 3 clicks… ActiveImage Protector is simple to install, implement and use.

Push install agents easily

Use the Push installation to install ActiveImage Protector agents to all the machines on the network and activate licences in one go. You can then manage all agents via a Central Management console.

 
Unparalleled inline deduplication

Dramatically reduce backup storage space demands, as well as backup and restore windows with our Inline Data Deduplication Compression (IDDC).

 
Covers entire Business Continuity process

All backup and recovery needs, as well as virtualisation, migration and emergency failover options, without forgetting failback processes are integrated in ActiveImage Protector.

 
Virtual Standby Availability

Creates automatically updated boot points with scheduled incremental snapshots directly to a VMware ESXi or Microsoft Hyper-V Host. When a disaster strikes, the virtual standby replica (VSR) can be instantly started (in two minutes according to our test result). Change boot point if necessary! Works alongside any backup solution!

 
Emergency 2 minute failover

Use ImageBoot to boot backup files from physical or virtual machines as a VM and use it as emergency machine while restoring or operating a failback. This operation is simple to implement even in cases of extreme stress to hurry to get machines up and running ASAP: drivers are automatically installed and works with Microsoft Hyper-V, VMware Player/Workstation or Oracle VirtualBox.

 
Restore entire systems remotely

Connect to the Recovery Environment from anywhere in the world with the Internet-based remote access and support of your choice and recover any protected machine on the network. Perfect to reduce restore time if the IT administrator is not on site.

Recover files and folders in seconds

No need to restore the entire machine to recover files and folders. Use the file recovery wizard to quickly retrieve granular files and folders including access privileges. Alternatively, simply access them by double-click in Windows file explorer through our ImageExplorer (included).

Flexible high-speed bare-metal recovery to same or dissimilar hardware & hypervisors

Included Recovery Environment to restore your entire systems from / to any hardware or virtual environment. The intuitive wizard guides you through all the steps.

Restore to same size, bigger or shrink to smaller partition

Flexible restore to same size or larger drives or easily migrate to faster smaller SSD drives.

We switched to ActiveImage Protector for its ease-of-use, attactive pricing and excellent support team. ActiveImage Protector also reduced the time of our backup creation by 60%.

We are impressed by NetJapan’s impressive results compared to our previous tape backup solution.

Les produits développés au Japan sont de grande qualité et ActiveImage Protector n’échappe pas à la règle! Nous n’avons pas trouvé de solutions avec un meilleur ratio de déduplication/compression ! De même pour la vitesse à laquelle les sauvegardes sont réalisées… et nous avons testé pas mal d’autres solutions ! En bref, nos techniciens l’ont…

In our experience, products developed in Japan are high quality and this is also true with ActiveImage Protector. We could not find a solution with a better deduplication / compression ratio! Also the backup speed is faster then what we have seen before … and we have tested quite a lot of software! Our technicians…

“I’ve been testing NetJapan ActiveImage Protector and I’m pretty impressed with the deduplication functionality. Even when used at the medium (recommended) setting, there was a considerate space saving over Windows Server Backup (WSB). Using a Windows 2012 R2 that included two small VMs we ran some tests against WSB: WSB backed up the host and…

“I had the chance to test the pre-release of ActiveImage Protector 2016 and must say, I am really impressed with the modern dashboard and the many options it provides for running and checking backup jobs. But beyond just looks, it is apparent that NetJapan’s development team worked really hard to deliver something truly new! For…

“We had a CryptoLocker attack and NetJapan backup saved us.”

“One of our customers’s network got attacked by Cryptolocker via the proxy server despite antivirus beeing installed on the proxy server and local PCs. Unfortunately the user who opened the infected file had administrative rights and as a result, all the company relevant data got encrypted. Fortunately, we had installed ActiveImage Protector Server on this…
